I'm pretty new to scale modelling, so obviously there's hundreds of new things for me to learn. Currently one of my projects is constructing the King TIger, used by German army in the 2nd world war. Plans are to make the Tiger in sort of "at rest" condition, with technicians from the Krupp factory examining an engine malfunction on the Maybach engine of the Tiger. I also used Tamiya photo-etched parts for the grill and gunsights, just to add little fashion to it..
above is a shot of the rear grille, after primed then added 2 layers of Tamiya Dark Yellow
above is the Maybach engine used to propell the movement of the King Tiger, scaled to 1/35 size, will be displayed under the opened rear hatch which you can see in picture 1. This part has actually gone thrugh painting, yet i have not the camera to take pics of it ^^ it's painted with primer coating, then with parts of metallic gray, titanium silver, and weathered with oil stains to emulate use..
above is pretty much the parts, after little details are glued on.. you can see the upper hull, lower hull, turret, and turret house..
It's currently not done yet, but i will update once things are progressing and i actually have a camera ^^v
